Kale, Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad / Perfect combination with a homemade dressing!

Hi friends!

I’m on quite the strawberry kick lately.   You can probably tell by the recent recipe selection.  Cannoli Strawberries this week and now this!  They are in season in South Carolina and I literally buy them by the buckets at the farmers market.

This is hands down one of my favorite parts of the year!

I eat them in plain, in cereal, pancakes, quick breads,  cannoli’s

AND…

salads.

Kale, Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad to be exact.

This is hands down one of my favorite salad combos ever.

I even throw in a few fancy maracona almonds to really make this meal restaurant quality.

This is seasonal eating at its finest and something I will be enjoying until the berries run out.

    Simply delicious!! If only I didn’t just have to throw out the goat cheese because it expired we would be having it for dinner, I even saved strawberries (from little hands) to make a salad just like this for dinner.

    Looks delicious!! Sounds like one of my favorite salad except I use pecans or walnuts, I will have to try it with almonds!

    This looks beautiful and delicious! I love all berries as much as I dislike melons and yes, I love our local farmers market! Have a great day!

      You sound like the hubs! He will not touch melon, but I can’t keep berries around him.

    You can’t go wrong with goat cheese – so good! This sounds like an awesome flavor combo! I can’t get enough strawberries either

    • JulieWunder June 11, 2015 at 9:24 pm - Reply

      Nope- goat cheese or feta makes everything better in my book!

    I live for berries in the summer time. I’m all about that seasonal fruit! But raspberries are definitely my favorite. If I could shop at a Farmers market every week I would, but I only get to go on certain weekends when I have time – it’s not in my town and requires a bit of a drive. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe !!

      Asheville has tailgate markets around town that are pretty awesome. So sorry you have to drive so far 🙁
      Raspberries are pretty awesome too! YUM!

    Looks good. We can’t do kale because of the high vitamin K count but one of the arugula mixes might work for us. We love strawberries, too. How about a strawberry salad with strawberry cannolies for a yum dessert…. THAT would be strawberry heaven, I’m sure!

    • JulieWunder June 11, 2015 at 9:23 pm - Reply

      Arugula or spinach would work great!
      I just bought an new giant bucket of berries, so that just might be my meal plans this week 🙂

  20. Yum! strawberries are so good right now.I love goat cheese. I have a kale recipe for this week too. It’s so versatile.

      It is! I always feel uber health when I eat it 🙂

    Oh heck yes! Easy, healthy and (I’m sure) delicious? I’m all over it. Thank you!
